New schedule for HKID card replacement set

05 January 2022

By The SUN


Hong Kong residents born in 1983, 1984, 1987 or 1988 – including foreign domestic helpers -- can replace their HK ID cards with the new smart identity cards from Jan 19 and Apr 2, 2022, the Immigration Department announced today.

Immigration said that they should bring their old identity cards and apply in person at a Smart Identity Card Replacement Centre (SIDCC), which are open from 8am to 10pm and from Monday to Saturday (except public holidays).


The Identity Card Replacement Exercise covers all Hong Kong residents, whether they are permanent residents or non-permanent residents who are permitted to take up employment, make investment, reside or study in Hong Kong.

To avoid the gathering of crowds, Immigration suggested that applicants make appointment bookings via mobile application, the Internet (, or the 24-hour telephone booking hotline 2121 1234. 


To download the Immigration mobile app or to make an appointment booking via the Internet, applicants can scan the QR codes below. 

Immigration also appeals to applicants to pre-fill the application form when making appointment bookings through the mobile app on or the Internet in order to enjoy faster identity card replacement service.


Immigration is also implementing a caring arrangement, under which a scheduled ID Card applicant may bring along up to two family members or friends aged 65 or above and two persons with disabilities to replace their identity cards together during the same visit to an SIDCC.

For Hong Kong residents born in 1980, 1981 or 1982, their specified period for identity card replacement will end on Jan. 18, 2022 (Tuesday). Those who have not yet applied for a new smart identity card should do so as early as possible.

Eligible Hong Kong residents who are absent from Hong Kong during their call-up period can apply within 30 days upon their return to Hong Kong.
